Car park views, cold coffee and grey skies Dry eyes for the longest time Chipped nails and a few extra pounds Smiles and laughter still surround Windowsill desk and no wall divide No need for hearts to hide And it’s funny how we sweat the small stuff And let all the past ghosts haunt us … Continue reading The Little Things
I Am Ready
I am ready Breathing and alive Terrified Honestly, i’m still a little bit insane But the best people are right? Battle scarred from the car crash that is my life But i know you can’t drive Do I still need my seatbelt? Will I forget how the lows felt? A fighter all my life Will … Continue reading I Am Ready
Warm Summer Rain
Everything going so well But my mind is playing tricks again That time of year again I'm falling into the well Of doubts and fears inside myself And I can't help but fear the end More than friends and more than hearts that mend He is warm summer rain Against my hollow frame Willing to … Continue reading Warm Summer Rain
The Man I Am
Sometimes I rip out my heart to watch it beat Because I no longer feel it's rhythm in me And when it's in my hand I go dance in the street To remember the feeling of ground under feet We're just bodies, we're just flesh and bone And my heart is the one in control … Continue reading The Man I Am

Embarrassment and Madonna Cups
I had to go and lose my mind again. I was living my best life, drinking whiskey from a plastic cup with Madonna's face on it while dancing to whatever cheesy music played in Flares. I just couldn't help myself! I don't even remember why I did it. I haven't looked back through the messages … Continue reading Embarrassment and Madonna Cups
What’s Left For a Lover?
If I could be in love with you My life would be ok But when you can't even love yourself What's left for a lover? Its probably always been you But right now everything around me is see-through Even you. And maybe I see my future held inside your ribs And maybe all my truths … Continue reading What’s Left For a Lover?
You are a stranger At the end of the line, telling me not to apologise I'm a stranger Full of demons I know longer know how to hide Searching for a stranger Who still knows all of my secrets Praying to a stranger Still hoping they can keep it I can see a stranger looking … Continue reading Stranger
